  • With the release of the surprise final issue of The Walking Dead this week, we get a huge resurgence in interest for the comic (which didn't have any entires on the chart last week!), which takes up four of the top five spots, and fifteen of the top fifty.
  • Leading the Walking Dead charge is the Kindle edition of the final issue, with the print edition in the third slot (which is impressive, since the print edition is only available from third party sellers as a very steep mark-up). A few other debuts as well, mainly pre-orders for the upcoming trade collection, hardcover collection, and Compendium.
  • It wasn't all Walking Dead this week though, as several other comics debuted as well, led by the two-year-old MAD About Trump collection (with interest no doubt driven by the announcement of the end of non-reprint editions of MAD Magazine).
  • Other debuts this week include Spider-Man Noir: The Complete CollectionStephen McCranie's Space Boy Volume 4Black Clover, Vol. 16; and Kindle editions of DCeased #3 and the sale-priced Batman: Gotham by Gaslight #1.
  • The first Sandman also returns to the chart this week, with interest driven by the announcement of an upcoming Netflix series.
